This episode we finish our season of "Films Based on Articles" with Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous. Ok, we admit, this one is a bit of a stretch but we really wanted to explore the roots of this one. Cameron Crowe wrote the screenplay for this film based on his experience on the road with The Allman Brothers writing an article for Rolling Stone. So we're reading the article "The Allman Brothers Story: How Gregg Allman Keeps Band Going After Duane’s Death" (link below) and watching Almost Famous. Set in 1973, the film chronicles the funny and often poignant coming of age of 15-year-old William, an unabashed music fan who is inspired by the seminal bands of the time. When his love of music lands him an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine to interview the up-and-coming band Stillwater -- fronted by lead guitar Russell Hammond and lead singer Jeff Bebe William embarks on an eye-opening journey with the band's tour, despite the objections of his protective mother. It's a bit of a stretch but we really enjoyed ourselves and had a great chat!
